Indians will tell you that the word Gharana comes from the word ‘ghar’, which means ‘family’ or ‘household’. In relation to music, it refers to a family of musicians or a school of music. We’re not sure what this restaurant was going for because the live music at this restaurant borders on boring and even annoying at times. Food-wise you’ll like the choice available as they list meaty and veggie-only options from the cities of Lucknow, Delhi, Hyderabad and Rajasthan, that each have their own distinct culinary style and standout flavours.
While the curries here hit a decent enough note, the starters tend to fall flat. The decor is charmingly elegant with plush sofa seating and Indian motifs all around, and service tries really hard but just isn’t as good as their competition. And that’s the crux, really – in a city that’s spoilt for choice when it comes to flavours from the subcontinent, Gharana just about makes the cut by getting the basics right, but is miles behind competitors.
